Brett Crozier - Surf When You Can


We were honored to have CAPT Brett Crozier, USN (Ret) at our Leading From the Front Series on October 26th! It was compelling to learn about his life, and his decision-making in the wake of a severe COVID outbreak on his ship.  He also passed on many other leadership lessons from his time aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt.

Special thanks to NewsHour Special Correspondent Mike Cerre for his superb moderation!

We hope to see you at our next event!
